Seven grieving young people are coming together to share their experiences and talk about their feelings in our new Teenage Support Group.

The group, aged from 13 to 16, have all had 1:1 support from the Family Support Team at Tynedale Hospice at Home. Now they are looking forward to meeting other young people in our new group.

“Grief can be an isolating experience for people, young and old, who are struggling to find their way forward in a world changed by the death of a loved one,” said Family Support Practitioner Emma Andrews. “So meeting others who “just get it” because they, too, are grieving the death of a special person, can be a huge comfort, while helping them to build connections and forge new friendships for the future.”

While all their stories are very different, they are all united in their feelings of grief and loss as, day by day, they start to process what has happened and, crucially, begin to understand their feelings.
